'Two State Solution is Dead'

Dramatic change: The White House drops two-state solution for Israel and Palestinians ahead of Trump-Netanyahu meeting.

By COLlive reporter

Supporters of Greater Israel, rejoice.

For possibly the first time, a U.S. Administration is backing away from the long perceived two-state solution for the Israel-Palestinian conflict, reports say.

A senior administration official said Tuesday that peace between the Israelis and Palestinians may not come in the form of a two-state solution, according to the AP news agency.

Speaking to reporters ahead of President Donald Trump's meeting Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the official said Trump is eager to begin facilitating a peace deal between the two sides and hoping to bring them together soon.

The unnamed official said it will be up to the Israelis and Palestinians to determine what peace will entail -- and that peace, not a two-state solution, is the goal.

AP called it "a dramatic shift" from former President Barack Obama, who said he saw no alternative and who had an icy relationship with Netanyahu.

Netanyahu is scheduled to meet with Trump at the White House Wednesday. The two leaders will hold a joint press conference before convening for meetings and a working lunch.

The prime minister will then head to Capitol Hill for meetings with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, AP wrote.

Israel supporters are waiting for Trump to fulfil his campaign promise of moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing the holy city as Israel's capital.

VIDEO: A recent video posted last Thursday by the "Boomerang - Fighting for Israel" organization argued that the "The Two State Solution is Dead."

PRESS RELEASE

February 13, 2017

Crown Heights Women for the Safety and Integrity of Israel eagerly looks forward to the upcoming historic meeting scheduled this week between new US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. We anticipate a fresh approach to US-Israeli relations in light of President Trump’s goodwill and clear -sighted understanding that the top priority of any government is to protect its citizens.

In accordance with the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s oft repeated adage that one ought to live with the times - not the New York Times but the weekly Torah portion, providentially this week’s portion records the symbolic visit by Yisro to his son-in-law Moses and the Jewish People in the desert after their exodus from Egypt.

Yisro, the high priest of Midian, abandoned his position of greatness and came into the desert to annul the negative impression made on the World after the war with Amalek. Up to then “people heard, they trembled” (Beshalach 15:14) at the miraculous manner in which G-d took out the Jews from Egypt and none dared attack them.

Except for the nation of Amalek. While their audacious assault ended in defeat, the very act served to lower the Jewish People’s esteem and thus Yisro came to uplift their standing in the World’s eyes.

We encourage President Trump to follow likewise in galvanizing Israeli leaders to stand firm on their security and withstand the pressure to make concessions, including restarting negotiations, which harm Israel’s welfare and growth.

For as the Lubavitcher Rebbe said time and again, concessions breed weakness and invite endless pressure while settlement throughout the entire Land of Israel, especially those places most contested, confirms the Jewish People’s G-d-Given right to live there and will result in true peace with Israel’s enemies.

“And those who bless you will be blessed”.

Sincerely,

To # 2
The USA has territories it's held on to such as Puerto Rico that are of other ethic background ( Hispanic instead of WASP-white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant). The way America was considered to be. Puerto Rico is part of Central America not North America. Yet many 'American' criticize Israel for it's existence even on our G-d given land. Other countries also have possessions & territories all over the world. Hypocrites with double standards!

Printing Tanya
After printing Tanya at the White House, can at least one copy be sent to all Chabad Houses in the United States? Surely with all the billions that the US has spent over the past 8 years, the White House has a few thousand dollars to print Tanya and mail them with USPS.
